The Taku Lodge excursion is expensive, but we all agreed that it was worth it.

The Taku Lodge excursion is expensive, but we all agreed that it was worth it. The view of the glaciers were incredible. Dinner was also surprisingly good. You will almost certainly see black bears up close.

We were picked up by the plane operators at the dock and taken to our float planes. In a few minutes were were cruising above the glaciers with taped narration. Looking down on the various glaciers was an amazing experience. The weather was poor so it wasn't as pretty as it would be on a sunny day, but seeing the rivers of ice is something that can't be described with words. It was a wonderful hour of flying that seemed like just a few minutes. Read Less

We booked the Taku Lodge Float Plane tour through HAL and it certainly lived up to previous reviews. Expensive, but once in a lifetime and worth it. The views are spectacular, the lodge is remote and the salmon bake was excellent. Found out afterwards that you can walk down the pier and book the exact same tour with the exact same provider that HAL uses for $30 p.p. less. Something to consider. Before the tour we walked the town. Just OK. Would recommend an excursion. Read Less

The float plane or seaplane took us over beautiful glaciers on our way to Taku Lodge. Once at the lodge we had a great meal and learned the history of the lodge. It had a great gift shop, far better than what one sees in port and very reasonably priced items. Scenery was beautiful and the black bears joined us for picture taking. Best thing about our cruise.

In Juneau, we splurged on the floatplane to Taku Lodge for a salmon dinner. Well worth the money!!! This was our favorite experience. The flight over the glaciers was breathtaking. I held my camera by my face in the window of the plane and snapped photos like crazy with the digital camera. I figured that some would turn out and I did not want to spend the flight looking thru a viewfinder. Husband was on the other side of the plane taking video. The pictures help remind us how gorgeous it truly was. Once we landed we walked up to the historical lodge where the alder fire was started and slabs of King salmon were grilled. There was a small gift shop, a modern restroom building, some friendly dogs, and hiking trails. When the lunch bell rang we went through a buffet line and sat at large tables. They provided Russian tea and coffee; hot or over glacier ice. Alaskan beer was available. Our meal consisted of salmon or chicken, beans, coleslaw, fruit compote, herb biscuits, and ginger cookies. It was delicious. While we ate, the staff told the story about the Taku Lodge. The most impressive part was how quiet it was, especially in comparison to the crowded stores in town. Although we did not see any of the resident bears, I feel that we experienced the true Alaska. We also ate crab at Tracy's crab shack--excellent. Read Less
